Latest Ratings

How to $lurp

Rate any hashtag or link with a $lurp rating from 1 to 5 stars, i.e. $+ to $+++++

You can also use special rating keywords, such as $like or $dislike

Rating will apply to all tags or links in your post.

Games can be rated multiple times, everything else takes your latest rating as your score.

What's coming

We will chart how much you like a game over time, and represent this with a graph (we are already tracking this with the $lurp ratings)

Mentions - where you will be able to @mention people and find posts where you are mentioned.

Threads - where you will be able to reply to a post thus turning it into a thread.

Follow people. As we're all mates for now, we don't need this just yet.

Easy searching of tags. Again, not needed yet but on the plans.

Publication scores - we're tracking how you rate articles, and your ratings also get applied to the article's website. At some point we'll show how liked/disliked each publication is.

Some other cool things too! ;-)

Can I cheat?

No :p

There's no point in spamming ratings, as you only get one rating per tag (unless it's a game). So only your latest rating to a tag will apply. If you change your mind and want to re-rate something, that's fine, but repeated dislikes (or likes!) won't work as your vote will only count once towards the final.

When it comes to games, you can rate them as often as you want, but only your average rating is submitted to the game's page - so again spamming won't have any effect. Rate games when and as you feel like it, as we will show how you liked a game over time. This is not just great for us seeing what our friends think of games, but handy for developers too - peaks and dips may help them see which bits of their games were liked... and which not so much.

Thanks for the info @jotch holding off on this one as bought thief and tomb raider when they were in sale on PSN last week. Far too many games now to play. Think will buy it at some point.

Finished the good side story (very short I think)...now to completely wipe out the DUP and get the Trophies and then to the darkside... Game is good, a bit too short and the actual map is pretty small and feels very autonomous and not as interactive as perhaps it should be. Would be better with more 'GTA' style interaction e.g. being able to drive a car would be a start, perhaps more destructible environment that could also be taken into account with regards to your hero status. This could then lead to the city being rebuilt as you lose your powers for a time, etc. In other words there is a lot more that inFamous could explore...I expect a sequel to be vastly better than Second Son, if it's more of the same then I won't bother buying.

It won't even work for most first person games without significant tweaking. Even the positioning of door knobs and such in a normal fps will throw people off when using VR. It's tough to get right.

If you're a fan of Infamous 1 & 2 then this is a must buy, if you found those boring then move along and there's nothing to see here. #Infamous:SecondSon $++++ It's more of the same with a very good PS4 polish!

@stanokella Rip off :lol: at least we can sell the hard copies on if we don't like the game or just don't have any further use for them. I want it, but dunno whether to wait till I get a new TV - builders in next month so hopefully not too long a wait..

How much is it on the store? I haven't turned on my PS4 for over a month o_O For those of you who have got it - what's it like!? I am not sure if I want to wait until I get a new TV. Games look so much better on the Sony TVs!!

Where did you guys order from? Amazon is selling for £47 - is that a good price? Keep us updated on what you think too - and don't forget to rate as you play :p I am giving it $+++++ from what I have seen so far. #infamous

True you will still need a TV, not all games will work in VR unless there is a mode to use it like the current Head mounted displays. They have mentioned other content besides games, apparently working with NASA on something that will simulate you being on Mars.

VR only works for 1st person games, no? So unless all games suddenly include a 1st person perspective then I see it as mainly being in competition to my TV.

Dispatched and should be with me tomorrow - off the back of the quality of the 1st and 2nd games I don't think I need to wait for any reviews to make this a must-buy for me!

@Azz will read a couple of reviews first, you getting digital or boxed? Haven't got any digital yet other than the plus freebies.

I'm in! Ever since playing those massive VR games in the arcades in the 90s I've wanted VR at home. Don't think you can compare it to a TV, its a totally different experince.

@Azz there will be limited development budgets, and I guess they will divert to what will make the most profit. Assumptions maybe that last gen is where the money is at the minute, but when you look at AC4 for example, and compare it between the 2 differences are quite dramatic. Did seem strange to me how poor it looked compared to all the other multi plats next gen looks. Like the re do of tomb raider, which is the most dramatic upgrade I have seen. But who knows, could turn out that it looks a lot better than that, but if it was next gen footage I dread to think what the 360/3 will look like!!

Thumb azz a143ae15 0dc5 4eb4 9d0c 14e836c76d77Azz

@stanokella Doesn't make sense tho - why couldn't they develop on two systems? It'll only hurt their next gen sales if next gen is 'downgraded' imo..
